washington, sitting in for gwen ifill this week, pete williams of nbc news. pete: good evening. we hope your holiday went well. president obama and hillary clinton could not have expected their week to unfold as it did. the president was hoping to focus new attention on the promise of u.s. relations with the far east. secretary clinton was with him on what she thought would be her last overseas mission. instead, mr. obama found himself on the phone with middle east leaders as israel and hamas in gaza rained down rockets on each other. and secretary clinton headed for the region hoping to use a cease-fire to search for longer term answers. >> now we have to focus on reaching a durable outcome that promotes regional stability and advances the security, dignity, and legitimate aspirations of palestinians and israelis alike. pete: but she also made it clear the u.s. is firmly supporting its ally israel. peter baker was traveling with the president. peter, with all the changes in the region, how has the u.s. role changed in this process? >> well, of course, you saw president obama taking a very h
for businesses to continue to operate, given all the onerous and burdensome regulations coming out of washington. and we want to make that stop so we can turn the country aund and began to be a starter country again. we know that the obama administration over the course of the term has imposed 400 regulations that impose more than $100 million of costs annually on small businesses. the small business administration has said that there are so many regulatory burdens on small business that it cost them $10,000 per employee. those are the kinds of things that we want to stop right now so we can see moe startup and jobs created. >> is one thing to hope for freezing regulations. but i guess we had hoped for "a-team" canaday. if you don't know these regulations, you could be in big trouble. let's say that you stop adding to the regulations. that alone has prompted the obama administrati say, well, republicans don't want to protect us. how are you going t answer the predictablcriticism that you're not looking outor folks, you are looking out for business interests? >> well, we are. we are saying in he

. there are lessons to be learned from the clinton's second term that might offer guidance to obama where he reelected. some of the presidents who face hostility through congress, fill a majority of their own party including washington, jefferson, monroe, grand, theodore roosevelt, johnson and george bush. en route jackson was censured by congress controlled by his undemocratic party. it is like he never forgave. franklin roosevelt had a constant battle with southern democrats who opposed his new deal legislation. he suffered his greatest political defeat and the democratic controlled congress refused to support his plan to pass the supreme court. eisenhower, a republican, fought legislation drafted by a fellow republican of ohio who sought to take away presidential power. what this paper is all about, however, is what we might expect in four years of a second term for barack obama. where he reelected, obama in all probability would face the daunting challenge of working with republican majorities in house and possibly in the senate. what lessons might obama learn from history were he reelected? confr

into recession. kristen welker is in our washington bureau. good morning. >> reporter: president obama is also facing a number of challenges overseas, as you say, from the unrest in the middle east to the continuing fallout over the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. but the fiscal cliff looms large. president obama returning from a post-thanksgiving round of golf, but off the links, the clock is ticking. lawmakers need to hammer out a deal to prevent the so called fiscal cliff. deep spending cuts and tax hikes set to take effect next year. >> i think we're all aware that we have some urgent business to do. >> reporter: after a meeting at the white house last week, congressional leaders struck a rare tone of bipartisanship. >> we had a very constructive meeting with the president. >> we feel very comfortable with each other. >> reporter: but a major sticking point remains -- taxes. president obama wants to let the bush era tax cuts expire for the wealthiest americans. many republicans still oppose that idea. aides have been trying to work out a compromise. >> none of this is pretty. it'
when we were working on the film during the health -- at one point we were in washington, i forget why, and obama was meeting with the republicans at blair house. so everything sort of came together for us then. you know, the moment was bart stupak and the public option. it felt like history happening all over again. and it seems to me that it's essential, you know, accepting compromise is essential because it advances us in terms of actually being able to cover more americans and giving us health care. it also shows it's possible to breakthrough barriers that we thought were, you know, i mean the idea that this first-term president, first-term african-american president was going to go to health care which supposedly undone, was an astonishing thing, everybody said it was a big mistake and he did it. and i think the election was a referendum on -- >> you're both health care who watched this unfold. you're an actual doctor, a provider, and someone who drew up the original plan for the public option. and now we have passed it, what is the way that you go back and think about that proces
